The Crede Organic Coconut Oil has been mechanically pressed from coconuts, and is not refined, bleached or deodourised.
Virgin Coconut oil is a highly dynamic 100% unrefined and organic oil that can be used as a skin care treatment or as a cooking oil – and of course, due to its amazing effectiveness in both fields we recommend that you do use it on both your skin and to cook with.
As a Skin Treatment
Virgin coconut oil has for centuries been used as a remedy by traditional healers to nurture the body, mind and spirit. It is ideal as an all over body moisturiser and skin conditioner especially for sensitive skins. It may be helpful in topical relief for skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis and after sun relief, through its cooling and soothing properties.
The oil can be slightly warmed to ensure that it is very liquid. You then massage 2 to 4 teaspoons (depending on the volume of hair) into the hair and leave it in the hair for 1 to 2 hours. Alternatively you can leave it on overnight (you will need to cover your pillow with a towel). After that you will wash your hair with your favourite natural shampoo. This can be repeated 2 x weekly. VCO will also help control dandruff.
As a Cooking Oil
Virgin coconut oil contains a unique group of saturated fats known as medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) the same unique set of MCTs that are also found in human breast milk (mothers milk) Traditional knowledge supports coconut oil as the richest vegan source of Lauric Acid, found only in Mother’s Milk and Virgin Coconut Oil in concentrations of up to 50%.
The Coconut oil has many benefits:
Most oils contains long chain fatty acids which are absorbed slower into the body due to the fact that they must be emulsified by bile salts in the small intestine before they can be absorbed into our body. The short and medium-chain fatty acids contained in coconut oil is absorbed directly and this is more easily digestible and converted into quick energy.
The Good Oil
Research has found that medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs), which are created when digesting MCTs in coconut oil, enhance the absorption of minerals such as calcium and magnesium, B-group vitamins as well as fat soluble vitamins A, D, and K.
Virgin coconut oil’s unique properties make it an ideal addition to any weight management program. A study conducted on a population, where coconut oil is a staple, showed that metabolic rates of the individuals within the population were 25 percent higher than in comparable test subjects. It is recognised that an increased metabolic rate is a key to healthy weight management and may account for the leanness of people living in areas where coconut oil is consumed on a daily basis. Coconut oil yields fewer calories than any other oils. MCA’s actually speed up metabolism so we can more efficiently burn the calories we eat.
Enjoying Virgin Coconut Oil
The saturated nature of virgin coconut oil proves to be highly resistant to heat and light. It has the highest smoke point of all natural oils (approx. 180°C), making it ideal for baking and frying, without causing the breakdown into trans fatty acids or rancidity often associated with vegetable oils. It has the slight aroma and taste of the beautiful fresh fruit. Ideal for curries and Asian dishes, it’s great when sautéing onions, baking or frying potatoes, scrambled eggs or simply spread on toast. You can blend it with other healthy oils such as olive oil, use it in smoothies and salad dressing, or enjoy it straight from the spoon. Recommended daily intake is three tablespoons a day.
The 500ml comes in a glass jar and the 1l comes in a plastic container.

Great in salads.06/05/2018, By JennyI use this coconut oil everyday and I'm so happy that it's available in the 1 litre size. I have it with my porridge instead of butter, in smoothies, a little with frying as only a little is needed (especially fried eggs). Also excellent on my dry skin and rub a little on my nails at night which stops my nails from being brittle, sometimes on my hair as a wash out conditioner, as a scrub with salt or sugar before a shower. I also like the natural smell and flavour.22/03/2018, By Healthy Girl10?1022/10/2017, By NtoshI love this coconut oil. I use it for frying, baking as well as moisturiser.
